Secrets of Success

Eat With A Smaller Fork



I will often eat with a dessert fork because it's smaller than the regular fork. It forces smaller bites and makes the food last longer, and makes me feel like I'm eating something special.

  • I do the same thing with my utensils! I portion my food out every time, but sometimes my body is full before I finish it all. The small fork=smaller bites=I know when I'm full faster. (Plus I love little utensils haha) - by ILUVBETTYBELKEL
  • Desperate, I turned to a nutritionist to lose weight. The hospital nutrition office had a real life size set of portion control food examples. Taking the time to study the size of favorite foods like a bowl of steel cut oatmeal or serving of artichoke flour spaghetti has made a magnificent difference.

    A demonstration of the the four / five wedges in the new daily food plate, comparing each wedge to a small bowl or dessert plate -- has aided in eating only 1300-1400 calories a day. Since my first visit five months ago, I have lost 44 lbs. Since starting to diet a year ago -- 65 pounds in total. .

    Many times I snack on my favorite foods, PORTIONing has made a HUGE difference! Stop n Shop sells a 7" whole wheat pizza crust that makes four wedges. One wedge is food plate portion size, 2 wedges make vegetable and carb portions only 120 calories!
